The Gullies Retreat, Bundanoon
The name of this designer hideaway gives a quiet nod to the beautiful mountainous part of the Highlands referred to by our original indigenous people as ‘a place of deep gullies’. This luxurious hideaway combines history (two 1920s sandstone cottages) with the contemporary (a modern cube with ceiling to floor windows) overlooking acres of gullies. Stay with up to 10 people and enjoy every traditional and mod con, including central heating, a slow combustion wood heater, gourmet country kitchen and a deck with a view of the tree tops. Walk into nearby Bundanoon or get lost in nature. This retreat is elegance and understated beauty at its best. Perfect for: The design conscious, stylish groups, lovers who love nature.
